why do you think the love for this show is so intense? this is something i never seen before. this not just a good cartoon that people like. the fandom is huge and a lot of people (including myself) are obssesed over it...
what makes Friendship is magic so uniqe in this matter? we don't have fans of oter cartoons being so active about it. they generally don't try to spread the love for the show but for FiM people have the urge to show it to everyone and making them love it. why do bronies like posting MLP images so much? -especially among themsleves.
these are are things that do not exist in other fandoms, i have no logical explanation to this i just feel that i love it and that the whole world should love it as well :P
i think that the love in this show is at a magnitude because the idea of a pink or yellow or green pony is something that is inspiring to see and get accustomed to, it shows that although there is a childish side to it, there is a greater sence of innocence behind the idea of a pony then that of a different animal..
since birth many people love horses, they are known as majestic animals and can be seen almost anywhere as a thing of power..
take the movie avatar.. a gleaming pic of when the navi were retreating from the human foot soldiers and the image of a local horse creature on fire galloping away, was in both slow motion and in absolute focus for a solid 5 seconds..
horses and ponies are something of great power and when descended to that of a tiny loveable creature that could probably stand no taller than a nearby shrub and throws apples as weapons and grows up in a colorful village of (and if you look there are the words caring and sharing everywhere) filled with love, its bound to get attention...
more on the topic, in today's society with our wars and religions, killings, and gangs, we need a share of love in our lives, it's why people take up hobbies and or sports, it's both something to do and love.
the fandom is huge because the idea of love and people coming together is something that is very appealing to that of an impressionable youth, and when you take the very same people into the fandom that the youth looks up to on a daily basis its a mixture to convert, pervert, and brain wash the youth into believing something.. the very same tactic is used by the church.. keep the older boys that are 16-20 in the group as much as possible and make them love and play with the younger youths and the younger youths will want to stay themselves, as they both respect and honor an older person whose ideas, age, and physical form is something that the young youth can imagine and work towards.. it also plays on the physical image of the mind, if you take a child and put them with a boy.. in his prime at 20-24.. the youth will want to love and be with the 20-year-old because they are strong, they could be a protector and a person with understanding.. almost like a father figure..
the fandom is in turn growing because the older generation of 19-26 year-old are getting into it because the corruption of the world around them is getting to them and they need an out for love and sharing.. and the younger generation that may have a hint of corruption in their heads follows the older generation as they want to be strong or smart or like the older generation
what makes Friendship is magic so unique in this matter?
friendship when put against the human psyche is a strong maternal instinct, it is something that we are born with and is an off shoot of love for our caregivers..
when posed with hate and love in a sleep pattern, a sleeping person will always gravitate towards love.. its natural and part of the human condition that we want to love and that is what makes us want to re-produce and in turn love our offspring..
magic on the other hand is full of question and wonder, it is part of who we are,
if we did not like magic we would not want to explore the stars or even look onto the heavens with question in out hearts.. magic is a form that is easily connected with fun, card tricks, people of wonder, or something that is a wonderful surprise..
love is also considered in a few cultures to be magic.
when it comes to activists and proprietors of the show there are a lot of them ya, but they usually spring up in a group and eventually convert a selected proportion into the idea..
its how religion works and how ideas spread..
take a priest and give him two people.. the two people eventually convert to the church, those people will eventually get bored with their tiny circle and go outwards in a way that they will also seek to be like the priest and convert more people...
however the bronies are doing this it is on a smaller scale, BUT because the general people who are in the smaller groups look for an out of love, understanding, and peace, they are very easily swayed by this idea..
it may be on a small-scale but its like an infection because people are so impressionable its easy to convert and the process in the real world only taking a few years to do successfully can take a matter of a few hours.. and the newly converted person will get bored with the tiny group in a matter of days and start to look outward..
bronies i would think like to post pics of ponies to show love to each other..
and no...im not spending half a hour correcting the punctuation in that moster..
